You Will Arise

This prophetic word from Marsha Burns was very good and encouraging. But that last paragraph…WOW! It spoke volumes into my spirit.

Prophetic Direction:
“You Will Arise to a New Level of Overcoming'”
by: Marsha Burns, Kremmling, CO

The Lord says, “You will arise to a new level of overcoming. You have already begun to see patterns in your life that have consistently opened the door to the enemy’s work against you. These patterns will become increasingly apparent as you progress and punish disobedience with your obedience. Rejoice in this process.

“Your struggle is not over, but if you look back you can see that victory has come more speedily than in times past. This is because you have learned to release your anger and bitterness and have refused the victim position. You will continue to rise up to defeat the enemy more effectively as you choose to exercise your faith in Me to bring you through.

“Do not be afraid of unknown challenges that lie ahead. You cannot fight the battle until you see the enemy and discover his method of attack. Rest in the assurance that My grace is sufficient, and that I will bring you through to victory as you yield to the leading of My Spirit,” says the Lord.

Luke 12:11-12, “Now when they bring you to the synagogues and magistrates and authorities, do not worry about how or what you should answer, or what you should say. For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.”

“This, indeed, is a season when you discover, in greater dimension, the power to overcome every obstacle. Old mindsets that bring defeat to you will become crystal clear. It will be like suddenly awakening from a dream to see the absolute reality of your existence and spiritual dominance.

High Place of Discernment
“I am lifting you up to a high place, spiritually, where you can see the valley below with great clarity. You will no longer see the world and people around you with natural eyes, but you will see through eyes of discernment that penetrate through the veil that separates flesh and spirit.

“Be prepared to have the eyes of your understanding enlightened. I will cause you to grasp the wisdom of things you have not been able to comprehend. This will enable you to overcome obstacles and walk in confidence and victory.

“You have already had significant breakthroughs in understanding how the spirit realm affects your body and soul, but I tell you honestly that your level of comprehension is not even half of what you will come to know and grasp. Every new revelation will become your possession and strengthen you.

“If you ask anything in My name, according to My will, I will do it. I will teach you and show you, by My Spirit, the difference between what you want, according to your carnal nature, and what My will is. It will be a divine separation of soul and spirit. Yield yourself completely to this process.”

Hebrews 4:12, “For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two–edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

I Am Your Pilot
“Things have not worked out exactly as you expected. This is because you cannot see the end from the beginning. I have designed it to be this way so that you can be built up in faith and know that I am with you to direct you along your path to destiny. Take delight in the fact that I am your Pilot, and I will maneuver you through even the most dire straits.

“Don’t miss or overlook opportunities that look small and insignificant by looking too far out and focusing on the big picture. I have great things in store for you, but you must not despise the days of small beginnings.”

Job 8:7, “Though your beginning was small, yet your latter end would increase abundantly.”

“I say, establish clear boundaries and reorder your priorities so that My blessings can flow like a river – uninterrupted. The temptation will be to create your own blessings and to depend on your own strength to accomplish your desires, but I hold all power over Heaven and Earth. Depend on Me to cause you to be fruitful. Your accomplishments are of a temporary nature, but what I produce in you is everlasting.

“Your most difficult days are behind you. You have endured much and been strengthened by your perseverance. Truly you are stronger now than you have ever been. Your faith has been tested through many trials and tribulations, and you have come through in victory. I count your faithfulness as righteous.

You’ve Come a Long Way!
“You’ve come a long way, but you have not yet gone as far as you can go. The possibilities for your life have not been exhausted. On the contrary, you will be surprised and delighted at what I have in store for you. But, you will have to hold your own dreams and desires loosely to allow My will to manifest, so that you can receive the best that I have for you,” says the Lord. “Trust Me!”

“Prepare to be stretched, but know that you will not be challenged beyond your ability to accomplish what is set before you. Trust Me for strength to overcome and endure. It is true that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.

“Those things in your life that seem to have been fragmented or left undone will now be brought to a conclusion as the door to the past is shut and a new and exciting door is opening before you. Rejoice in this time of new life and hope.

Breaking the Chains
“I am taking you, step by step, through the things that have consistently made you stumble and lose heart. It will be like breaking the chains, one link at a time, so that you can see clearly the nature of the bondage, and you will never again be ensnared as in days gone by. Rejoice in a new level of liberty,” says the Lord. (Photo via Pixabay)

“There have been times in your life when you have swung between two poles, one of ultra hope and blessing and the other abject poverty and hopelessness. If you will yield to the work of My Spirit along these lines, I will bring you from extreme ups and downs to a plateau of spiritual reality and faith. For certainly I am the Author and Finisher of your faith, and I will establish you on this level ground.

“Refuse to allow the enemy to use condemnation to remove you from the flow of revelation by the Spirit. His tactics won’t be anything new. Expect the same old lies that bring guilt, shame, and rejection – but now I will give you greater capacity to see quickly and deal with the attacks, so that your times of oppression will be immediately cut off, like awakening from a bad dream.

“I am releasing healing in you that will wash away the rejection and failures from the past and equip you to go forth with wisdom and endurance. Let go of the labels that have been assigned to you by various people and circumstances, for I call you My beloved.

Open Doors
“Prepare to make some of the most important decisions of your life as I present opportunities that you could never have imagined. You are Mine, and My plan is to establish you and bless you in ways that will remove even the vaguest remembrance of past disappointments and struggles.

“I will open doors before you, and you will behold new vistas and prospects for the future that you really never dreamed of. And, I will bring you by a way that you have not known, and make your feet like hinds’ feet that will enable you to navigate even the most difficult of paths. You will scramble up the craggiest places as though they were level ground, because I am with you to make the crooked places straight and the rough places smooth.

“You will have choices to make in the days ahead that have the potential to change the landscape of your life, forever. Seek Me for wisdom, and choose wisely. If you ask for wisdom, I will certainly give it to you.

“In this season you must recapture the gifting and flow that you once embraced. In the passage of time and circumstances you lost confidence, but now is the time when you can reclaim what was rightfully yours from the beginning. You cannot go back to the old manifestation of your gift, because it had to become like a seed that fell to the ground and died in order to take root and grow up in you to produce fruit for this time. Be open and yielded,” says the Lord.

I sleep under a dark weighted blanket, so as I skimmed this article by Lana Vawser it got my attention but when I went back and actually read it…WOW!  I have felt all day that I should share this because while it was for me, it is even more so for a few others. I am not going to tag. I know but more importantly, they will know.



~ written by Lana Vawser

I had a vision recently, and I saw intense winds blowing against God’s people. Many were in this cycle of being “knocked down” and then to get up again, only to be knocked down harder again. This cycle has been going on, over and over and over. There is a deep cry that has been rising to the ears of the Father from many in the body of Christ, “God, WHEN is this ever going to break? Lord, what do I need to do?”

Many of you reading this right now feel like you are at your weakest place. You feel like you have been broken like never before. Many of you have lost hope, you have lost joy, and you are still in that place of weariness.

Friend, the Lion of Judah is ROARING over you. The Lion of Judah is ROARING over you right now, and the SOUND from His roar is resounding, “ESTABLISHED!!!!”

I heard the Lord say:

“My people, you will not be established by man’s hand, you will not be established by your own strength, in the weariness, in the weakness, in the brokenness you are about to be established by My power like never before. My Mighty outstretched arm of power and deliverance will ESTABLISH you.”


Friends, you are about to experience the power of God in your life in a way you have never imagined. God is about to establish you in strength and breakthrough as you have never experienced before. The Lord is roaring over you right now, and your enemies are fleeing. What has opposed you and opposed the promises of God in your life will no longer be able to stand. Where there has been weakness, distress, trials, persecutions, you shall KNOW the strength and power of God like never before.

And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.

Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. 10 Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong. – (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)

I had a vision, and I saw this heavy, weighty, dark blanket that has been over many in the body of Christ. It has prevented you from taking a stand, the heaviness has blurred your vision, it has contained you, it has prevented you from soaring in all that is before you, but this attack is BREAKING in the name of Jesus.

I saw Jesus standing before these ones who have felt this heaviness over them and His eyes filled with love and authority He spoke: “It is done! It’s over.”

As He spoke suddenly what looked like this heavy weight blanket exploded into a million little pieces. Completely disintegrated and disappeared. I then saw Jesus unravel a huge banner over them and it said, “A NEW ERA OF MY POWER.”

Jesus then spoke again:

“You have entered a new era of knowing My power. I am reintroducing you to My power. I am reintroducing you to My power that will bring EVERYTHING into alignment. The battles have been to keep things out of alignment, but no longer will this cycle remain. There is a MIGHTY shift taking place now by My power to bring forth the greatest divine alignment you have ever seen by My hand. Things are not only going to suddenly fall into place, not only is one touch of My power and one encounter with Me going to shift everything, it is going to position you to partner with Me in greater ways to see My power move through your life in ways you have never expected or dreamed.”

“You will not be hindered anymore. You will not know the hindrances you have known any longer. The very things that have threatened you, you shall now TREAD UPON in My name. It is time for EXPLOSIVE VICTORY, and you are being established like never before in My strength and power.”


The Lord showed me that there are mighty encounters with Jesus and the revelation of His power upon these ones. In your cycles and circumstances lately you have seen anything “but” the power of God, but that is now shifting, and you will see the power of God manifesting and establishing you in strength in Him like never before.

I could hear Acts 1:8 booming all around me:

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)

Not only are you about to become a TESTIMONY to the power of God like never before, but you are also being positioned by the hand of God to partner with Him to see His power released into the earth in exponential ways. I kept hearing the words over and over “mantled with power.

I heard the Lord speak again:

“Not only will the signs and wonders manifest in your midst bringing all things into alignment in your life by My hand, but you shall also now see a major increase of signs, wonders, and miracles flowing through your life as you minister to others.”


The Lord showed me that the enemy has come so hard against many of you to try and kill and abort the ministry that the Lord has assigned you to, it has been so difficult for so many lately, but I heard the Lord say “The ministry is not dead, what the enemy has attempted to use to kill your ministry and take you out, I am turning by My mighty hand, and you and the ministry I have assigned you to are now being increased. There is a new birthing taking place in the ministry I have given you where you shall see mighty demonstrations of My power like you have never seen. EVERYTHING is going to change; things will not look the same, the way My power shall manifest, and My Glory revealed will leave all in awe and wonder. ”

The Lord showed me there are many ministries that are being rebirthed right now and new birthings taking place that are KEY for the end time harvest and carrying the Glory of God like never before.


There has been MAJOR confusion in the atmosphere and many attacks against many from the enemy attempting to muffle the voice of the Lord and many have been in a place of lacking clarity in what God is saying and the revelation contained with His Word. God is clearing the confusion, He is breaking the witchcraft attacks, He is fighting for His people because many are weary of fighting, and where the confusion has been not only is their clarity, crystal clear clarity coming from the Lord, but these ones will carry MIGHTY revelation of the secrets of His heart for the new era.

These ministries being rebirthed and the new birthings in ministries are beating LOUDLY with the sound of His heart, they are ones founded and grounded in deep intimacy, and they have been through deep fire. They thought they were going to die in the fire, but they have been forged in the fire and now coming forth with a purity and depth of intimacy with the Lord where they will be used to release the secrets and direction of His heart for the new era. The enemy has tried to lock them down, but the Lord is setting them free, and they are moving out with keys of wisdom and revelation for what God is doing and going to do in this new era.


I heard the Lord say, “I am laughing at the enemy. The way that He has tried to come against My people, the way He has tried to abort what I am doing, I am laughing in victory because what the enemy meant for harm, I have turned for good and what he has used to try and steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10) I am now establishing My people for the greatest demonstrations of My power, deliverance, provision, and breakthrough that they have known. My people have stepped into My divine reset and are coming back stronger than before.”

There is a mighty shift taking place over many right now where you shall see “once and for all” breaking of many cycles and breakthrough.

The Lord is roaring, “COME FORTH!!!!”

Friends, TRULY, encounters with Jesus are upon you and His power that is going to establish you in breakthrough, healing, new vision, freedom and strength that you have that is going to leave you in awe and wonder. Many of you are going to experience encounters with His power bringing transformation that will forever change you, mark you forever and be the moments in your life where you look back and say “from that encounter with Jesus I was never the same, everything changed.”

Don’t lose hope, the cycle and cycles are breaking, and you are moving into a new era of the demonstration of His power that you have never been in before. He is reintroducing Himself to you as the God of POWER.

How great is our God! There’s absolutely nothing his power cannot accomplish, and he has infinite understanding of everything.” – Psalm 147:5-7 (TPT)

Goshen Grove

Last night a part of our county was under a tornado warning. One of the areas listed in the path was Goshen Grove. The thing though was no one that I knew had ever heard of Goshen Grove. Hmmm Well….

What is a Goshen?   A land or place of plenty and comfort.

What is a Grove? Small wood or forested area, usually with no undergrowth.

What follows is the scripture associated with the word “Goshen,” a post I read just today by Amanda Shiflett of what the Lord  said to her. It got my attention since Goshen isn’t a word we hear every day. And then I write what I feel the Lord said to me as I read her post and studied the Word of God.

Scripture and background

We read about the land of Goshen in Genesis 45:10. In Genesis 45, we see the account of Joseph who has been sold into Egyptian slavery by his brothers. He has since risen as a high official in the House of Pharaoh and we read here of him revealing himself to his brothers.

1Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by him; and he cried, Cause every man to go out from me. And there stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known unto his brethren.

And he wept aloud: and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard.

And Joseph said unto his brethren, I am Joseph; doth my father yet live? And his brethren could not answer him; for they were troubled at his presence.

And Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray you. And they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt.

Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life.

For these two years hath the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest.

And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.

So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt.

Haste ye, and go up to my father, and say unto him, Thus saith thy son Joseph, God hath made me lord of all Egypt: come down unto me, tarry not:

10 And thou shalt dwell in the land of Goshen, and thou shalt be near unto me, thou, and thy children, and thy children’s children, and thy flocks, and thy herds, and all that thou hast:

11 And there will I nourish thee; for yet there are five years of famine; lest thou, and thy household, and all that thou hast, come to poverty.


From Amanda Shiflett

“I heard the Lord say, ‘I have called forth My Watchmen Prophets in this hour, out of mercy for My house and My people…to warn them, to keep them protected from the many things that are coming. Just as in the days of old, I have prepared a “Goshen” for My people, if they will listen and heed My true prophets. Do not be wise in Your own eyes, or think that You know My heart in its fullness. Many things are coming that My body has not been prepared for, but I am sending forth those that will help prepare them for the days to come. If you will listen and heed the many that I am raising up with the voice of a Watchmen, as one crying in the wilderness, they will prepare the way of the Lord for you, and you will walk in My Divine Protection. Now is not a time of fear, but of faith in Your God, for I will not leave You or forsake you, but you must follow Me, and heed My voice. You must listen, and follow the instruction of My Spirit. Now is the hour to listen to My watchmen!'”

What I heard the Lord say

I heard the Lord say, “I have prepared for my people a Goshen, but my people must prepare the Grove.

I felt in my heart like He also said prepare the way to the Grove and prepare the Grove by getting rid of that undergrowth. The undergrowth is there because of years, days, even hours and moments of neglect. It takes up space and drains essential nutrients from the ground.  He said to start the cleanup and you will be amazed at the quick transformation. And then He said most importantly after it is all cleaned out…do the work of upkeep!!!!

The undergrowth He highlighted was

  1. Any known sin (big or little). He said don’t list – as you already know what He’s speaking of.
  2. Distractions that are causing apathy. Distractions can be bad things that have happened, but they can also be good things taking you out of His presence and drawing you away from His call on your life.
  3. Sinful attitudes such as jealousy, bitterness, competition

Goshen Grove!!!

Pray for your fathers

This is the word I received that I feel was straight from God. I don’t know if it is controversial but there were definitely parts that were not comfortable. I don’t just throw it to you like a “hot potato” though.  It feels very precious to me and I know I am responsible for what God asks of me. I did share this with two others that I trust and was advised to give to you.  Whether there is anyone in my life that will be completely honest, I don’t know. I give it to you because in the end you are the Pastor and I respect the authority God has given you to lead our body and I am learning more and more about that every day.  If it is not a word to be shared with others I will use it as a personal word for sure.  I also have come into understanding about the difference between having received what can be a rhema word for me and but given to someone else will sometimes be at best a logos word, if that – so I understand it may be quite different for others than me…but maybe not.

Given 10:20am 9/3/2009 having received email from Ismenia re: Bryan Barcon’s dad:

As I sit here having received an email that yet another father of one in our body has passed away I feel overwhelmed by the presence of God.  I am shaken but something is rising within me.  How many is this now 13? Yes something is rising and honestly it has been rising since the 11th but I have shut it down to which I, even as I write this, must repent. What I am experiencing makes me uncomfortable but I feel the mandate is to die to this discomfort. I am no saint here and there are many that have cleaner hands, better reputations, stronger voices.  But God says ARISE.  I really want to run but I have learned better.  So I am going to begin to write- not knowing even what will become of this and knowing I am probably the greatest offender.

The devil is attacking many. He is attacking your leadership and that is something you cannot afford to dismiss or wait out. He is attacking women and entire families but I am asking you in this hour to stand against attacks on your men and most especially your fathers. In the end that is also an attack on the entire body, all of you.

How many will it take?  11, 13, 50, 100?  How many will it take? It is time daughters,mothers, sisters, wives. It is time for my women to stand up and to pray for your men, my men….Raise your voices in prayer and intercession and even all forms of entreaty.  To rally and support them.  To command the enemy to take his hands off of them and thus this body of believers. Stop waiting on someone else to do it. Stop waiting on your men to pray your prayers and repent for your sins.  Time to band together to pray and to cry out for the lives of your men…your sons, your husbands, your brothers, your fathers. To pray for your fathers, whether you have natural fathers or spiritual fathers or whether you have no earthly fathers….all are dependent on all fathers.  Time to put the hedges of protection around them. Time to plead the blood of Jesus over their lives and even their every step. Don’t just do it once or twice…do it in this hour and every hour. Time to make a commitment to honor them and to live in unity with them.  To see them as your own selves even as you are one body.

Time to repent for the way you have allowed the enemy’s agenda to take over and destroy some of your men, my men and reverse God intended roles.  Can you see? Can you see how the enemy has used you to reverse the roles? Can you see that it has happened even in the church?  Time for some who have set yourselves as spiritual head of household and exalted yourselves in that role to step down. Can you see that the men are losing their jobs and their health and their identities in a scheme that has been orchestrated against them by the enemy and you have been used to hasten it?  Can you see how you have allowed it and you have fostered it?  How you were convinced to want it?  Time to repent for wanting it in the name of equality.  For making your own definitions of equality.  No woman is exempt and most especially those that think they are.  Time for even those not aligned with, that have never been aligned with this scheme to repent for not banding together. Repent for not using your blood bought authority and taking a greater stand.  Time to repent for cowering and thinking it would not fall on you because it didn’t fall within your present belief system. For leaving it to the next generation to deal with. For not shouting disapproval from the doorways of even your own homes. Where is your voice?  Why is your voice and has your voice through the ages been a whisper? A whisper so no flesh can hear and judge that whisper is to have given no voice. Speak up daughters. Repent for allowing and even excusing disunity within your ranks. Gossip and strife, jealousy and unforgiveness are not feminine traits…they are sin. Time for this body of women to repent and then to band together and pray in unity for your men and your fathers and your church and your nation.  Time for you to take responsibility just as you have sought responsibility. Time for you to pray beyond self seeking prayers for your own futures and desires and stand up as women, as mothers, as wives, as daughters, as sisters, as my children and say enough.

If you don’t pray for your men, my men you keep yourselves in bondage.  Everyone.  All of you!  Can you see? Can you hear these words? Don’t turn away from them. It is time to repent and to stand together and raise your voices in unity against the enemy- as one body – only one – declaring as you stand together and yet alone because you are only one… LET MY PEOPLE GO!!!

Go for it…you have nothing to lose!

This doesn’t really seem like something profound or anything but I believe this is the word of the Lord:

“Go for it–You have nothing to lose!”

Received this word from God while in prayer during the worship service on 10/4/2009 and so I prayed this phrase. Then this exact word was given again on Saturday evening 10/10/2009 in a message by Sister Frankie Sneed as she preached at a revival service from Ezekial 37 on raising dead bones (Travelers Rest, SC revival service).

I had never spoken to anyone about this. God told her to preach it and at the end God told her to pray for me. She prayed and prophesied some things, and I came away knowing in my heart the words were from the Lord God Almighty to her to me. I know it does not really sound that clever or profound but for me, it changes everything- HALLELUJAH!!!
